Product Design & Manufacture

Got a new idea that needs a PV panel to power it? We can help you by designing a panel to fit your product and to match the electrical requirements of your system.

There are many products that require a small amount of power to operate them, and cannot be connected to the electricity grid because of remote location or the cost of connection.

We have been making PV systems for specialist equipment for decades and have vast experience of the operation of PV-battery stand-alone supply design. The sizing of the battery and PV modules are vital in ensuring that a system will operate successfully for a long lifetime. The choice of voltage for the system, the optimisation of energy use, and the confidence factor required for the job are all important factors in this process.

 We manufacture panels using many different materials and can provide a shape and size to match the product on which they are mounted. We have designed products for use in many environments including, marine, urban, industrial, high altitude and high latitudes.

 We have a wide range of test equipment and can verify the operation of prototype systems in many simulated conditions.

New solar panels for a solar farm

GB-Sol have just supplied their first replacement panels for a solar farm.

As technology for solar PV has changed rapidly over the last 10 years, sometimes when a module needs replacing, the manufacturer no longer makes that particular model.

Feed In Tariff rules mean that you are at risk of having your tariff revoked if you do not replace broken panels on a like for like basis. This can lead to difficulties when sourcing a replacement.

GB-Sol can cost-effectively create replacement panels with similar look and output to your originals, with mono or poly crystalline cells, 35mm or 40mm silver or black frame, white or black background to any specified dimensions.
